International energy consultancy Xodus Group has appointed Gareth Jones as its Decom Lead.
The appointment follows a successful year for Xodus’ decommissioning division which has secured several new clients and won £2-million of work in 2018.
Jones will be responsible for advising and supporting operators in relation to environmental and societal impacts associated with decommissioning.
Jones joins Xodus from BMT Cordah where he led the company’s international decommissioning activities. Previously, he was a marine ecologist with Marine Scotland, providing advice and support in relation to commercial fisheries and marine fish species for oil and gas, renewables and infrastructure projects.
He will work with Xodus’ decommissioning director, Enrico Salardi, who has recently relocated to the UK from the company’s Perth office.
